Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 — “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
Angelita is survived by her sister Delia Salcido, brother Manuel Garcia and wife Delia, sisters Elena Nieto & Rita Garcia, children Elda Gina Gonzales-Popkins, Raúl Gonzales (Susana Quezada), Elle’ Gonzales-Bland, Fran Stanton (Jason Stanton); grandchildren Jared Michael Popkins, Jack Clayton Popkins, Raúl Tyler Gonzales (Hannah Richardson), Valeria Quezada, Sebastian Gonzales, Victoria Gonzales, Lily Leilani Bland.
